The Hell City Tattoo Fest Gallery

April 14th, 2014 by Kevin -


The first of two Hell City Tattoo Festivals went down this past weekend. The first was held in Columbus, Ohio with the second being held in Phoenix, Arizona.

In the past, I’ve made videos of the convention but this time I just took a few pictures. All of the pictures are also on the Tattoo Snob Facebook page, and can be seen here for your tagging pleasure.

I’m sure this will be the first set of many pictures, and videos to be released. Be prepared, and if you haven’t done so – book your trip to Phoenix now. It never disappoints.
